Yellow Newton Pippin Apple Tree
Apple - Yellow Newton Pippin, Malus domestica 'Yellow Newton Pippin', is also known as Albermarle Pippin, was one of Thomas Jeffersons' and George Washingtons' favorite.
It was introduces to American from England in the mid 1750. It was grown in the US and shipped to London because it can not be grown in England due to the cool summers.
It is more flavorful and holds its shape better than any other pie apple. Green with yellow and brown highlights, this aromatic, snappy, tart treat is an excellent eating, cooking, baking, and storage apple.
It needs a hot summer and long autumn to ripen.It ripens later in the season and can be picked in late October. The tree is a late blooming vigorously grower that and tends to produce prolifically one year and lightly the next on mature trees.
It is best to thin fruit to maximize quality and size. Yellow Newton stores well and is self fertile. For peak flavor and acid/sugar balance, wait until harvest when cheeks are yellowish-green.
